Alejandra de Borbon married Bosco Ussia in Guadalajara today. Alejandra is the daughter of Alfonso de Borbon and Maria Luisa Yordi y Villacampa. Alfonso's father was the duke of Sevilla and decended from Infante Fransisco de Paula, 14th child of King Carlos IV & Queen Maria Luisa (of the Goya portrait). The grooms father is author Alfonso Ussía and his mother is Pilar Hornedo

The service was held in the Santa Maria 'Concatedral' (in Guadalajara), look here.

An article and picture at this HOLA! page. The dress is said to be vintage Chanel.

I suppose Alejandra de Borbon is a rather unique name, which means that she is editor of the magazine Citizen K, look here.

Wouldn't this thread overlap with the Bourbons of France as well as Italy, which we already discuss in their respective country forums here?

Marengo 10-08-2008 01:06 PM

No, these are collateral branches of the Spanish branch of the Bourbon family, so hence they are discussed here. Only Luis Alfonso de Borbon is moved to the french forum as he is the legitimist pretender to the French throne. The extended Borbon family that is discusse here is usually added to the SpanishRF genealogy in the Almanach de Gotha, and other genealogy sources.

In 1940 she married the Italian aristocrat Paolo Venturi Ginori Lisci marquis of Riparbella, with whom she got a daughter, Gabriele. The couple divorced and in 1958 she married another Italian, Stefano Franceschi (who died in 1981).

If I am not mistaken, the infanta Isabel was a sister of the late countess of Barcelona, and belonging to the Two-Sicilies branch of the Bourbons.

She was a halfsister of the Countess out of the first marriage of her father with Maria de las Mercedes, Princess of Asturias the oldest sister of King Alfonso XIII.

Thank you for the link but its in Spanish & I'm not that fluent .


I find it strange that no one from the Royal family attended the Funeral of the King's Cousin,maybe they were not that close .

Melibea 05-26-2010 08:34 AM

With google translator

I suppose that they were not close at all, from what I've read about the family this days is that they were "normal people" who do not mingle with the aristrocracy

Thanks Melibea,I often use babel fish or the google translator when I'm stuck.

The reason I found it so strange that there was no one to represnt the Royal Family yet we see photo's of 2-3 members of the Royal Family attending the Funeral of more notable "normal people" :ermm:

Melibea 05-26-2010 10:48 AM

^^
Well in most cases those normal people had a friendship with the SRF or they were so important that they deserved that someone from the SRF went to their funerals. But sometimes they don't go, for example when Miguel Delibes died most people expected someone from the SRF but no one went.
